How do RACFs continue to implement a safe environment for visitor access and resident movement?
Residential aged care facility healthcare workers across Australia are invited to join the Victorian Aged Care Response Centre (VACRC) together with ACSA to gain practical guidance. Infection prevention and control experts will discuss mitigating risk to facilitate good visitor access, enabling aged care residents’ movement, and implementing best practice for COVID recovery.
They will take you through the latest information and shared key learnings on visitor checks, symptomatic testing, PPE use, outdoor areas and declarations.
This webinar has been developed for all Australian aged care staff responsible for implementing operational requirements; with insights and advice collected directly from RACFs putting measures into action.
You can also ask questions about the requirements and share your own experiences.
